A modernized 70's villa and a separate retro sauna cottage at a unique location by the Kymijoki river. Enjoy the beauty of the view and the relaxing surroundings of the forest and nature park. 1,5 hour drive from Helsinki.
This is our family's holiday home and rebuilding project - the interior decor is an eclectic mix of inherited Finnish design of 60-70's and findings from vintage shops. 1 of the 3 bedrooms is in the separate sauna building which provides privacy when staying with friends.
The villa and the separate sauna building provide you with a fantastic view to the grand Kymijoki river all year round. Just relax with your friends and family in the large lounge gazing the view or the fireplace or enjoy dinner prepared with the big Smeg-stove or the grill outside on the terrace.
The old-skool sauna is to be heated by firewood and the water to the sauna has to be lifted from the river with buckets. The experience of the soft steam and swimming in the river in-between is definitely worth the effort - a true Finnish tradition for you to enjoy, too! (There is a wc and shower in the bathroom of the main building, if you are not THAT keen on the idea of bathing in the sauna :-) )
A couple of kilometers away there is the Valkmusa nature conservation area where you can enjoy a walk in peace and quiet of the extraordinary nature.
More action is provided some 25 km away at the Sirius Sports Centre in Pyhtää or in the Kotka and Loviisa towns nearby.
The guests have access to both the buildings and may use the grill, bicycles, some outdoor games, hammocks, safety vests etc.
However, please do NOT use the boat as the stream is rather wild and the level of the water varies, and I cannot take any responsibility of any incidents!

Me and my husband are a family that loves cooking and entertaining family and friends at dinners. You probably can see that in our choices for our holiday destinations as well as in our holiday home that we share with you in AirBnB :-)
